meteorologist and avid veggie gardener

I picked my last 1.5 pounds of broccoli for some weeks on 12/9. Most plants are still doing fine except for the heat tolerant variety (first I plant in August) which is pretty much frozen to death. But I won't get more growth in what seems to be a continuing colder than normal weather pattern. Some winters I can keep picking once or twice a month.
This looks like it won't be one of them.
Most likely next new harvest is President's day. The spinach got eaten by deer and the new growth is not yet ready and will from here to late Feb. be stalled by cold, most likely.
Maybe next winter I'll have continuous greens. Now I'll actually have to hit the veggie section of the grocery store.
